So I'm up to my eyeballs in the trench warfare that is, in fact, the retail hell of the Christmas Season. Why the hell the US decided to have all of our major holidays in a stretch from Oct 31st through Jan1st is utterly beyond me. Combine that with BGG.Con and MilleniumCon right in the middle of all of this, and I'm not sleeping much, nor probably will.

Which means, of course, that I'm crankier than a Crocodile without a beer bottle to chew on faced with a couple of paragraphs of crappy spelling mistakes. So how better to share my pain- oh, I mean JOY! HOLIDAY JOY!!!- than by sharing my favorite song about the Spirit of Christmas, by John Doe.

It's called:

Worldwide Brotherhood.



Just remember this holiday season when you just want to STRANGLE someone-

No!! I don't think I should. I'd hate to fuck up worldwide brotherhood!!!



Toodles!

Hey Dar, Merry Christmas to you! In honor of the thousands of half-baked wackadoodle posts you use to slip your super-incisive posts in undetected, behind enemy lines, here is my holiday song offering to you:

If you find me a band that has a more appropriately titled song about mucus on brains, I will proffer them, instead.

I just expected something a bit more.....Proggy from the Croc.

I mean, if we're just going to shove obscure Old Farts doing wierd music at each other, you just can't Ever, EVER, go wrong with these guzos.

AND-
Amazingly enough, it kind of has a holiday theme also-

"You Have to be Happy With What You Have to be Happy With".

Probably my modern motto....



(Saw them on this tour in Portland, OR, before I left for Austin. GREAT show.)

Re: My Merry Christmas Message to Y'all!
Now see, I consider them to be sacrosanct and far too beloved to take part in this sort of thread. I'm a bit jealous you got to see them, but of course I don't go to live shows any more, due to my innate loathing of every other human being on the planet. Here, you can have these guys for Christmas. I love them, but they're not sacred or anything, like KC:

Oh, you're right-
I have disgraced KC in the most Chit-Chatty of ways.

I beg your forgiveness, oh great Frippiness!!!!

Non Alignment Pact is pretty damn awesome though! Great dance music.



Another in this thread of great Holiday Dance tunes, I present these guys from Belgium.



Yah, in the 90's I was a lot thinner.

Re: My Merry Christmas Message to Y'all!
And now my coffee is cold, and I NEED to get some work done at home. So I leave with my OTHER personal anthem-

Adventures in Failure.



Man, I think music went to shit after the 90's. Either that, or I got old.

I saw the Kipper Kids give a fantastic performance in L.A. around 1980 or so. That's about the last live performance I can recall going to and having a good time.

Was it at the Roseland? I wonder if we were at the same show.

BTW, just learned that one of the Kipper Kids is Bette Midler's husband. I knew about that show, but didn't think there would be a love connection.

Met him a few times, hung out with him after watching one of his films on a rooftop in NYC... I have all of his albums, CD and vinyl and three DVDs (Stingray Sam, American Astronaut and K&M man)... I also have an animation cel he painted for rotoscope that is on the K&M man comp DVD. One of my favorites. I still have not picked up an autoharp, but he has convinced me to give that a go.

Nice title change, but it's a tad inaccurate, since I realized long ago that the depth and breadth of my musical exposure and/or preferences was miniscule in contrast to Pronoblem's, Morgan's, and many, many others who appear regularly in these fora. Hell, Dar, I'm sure your catalog of listening pleasures absolutely dwarfs my own. Still, what I like I like with a passion that burns hotter than the worst venereal drip.

Which, now that I think of it, calls for yet another reference to Santa Dog:

I never said you were avant-garde in your tastes- merely obscure, Cranky.

It is well known and verified that Morgan and Sisteray are FAR more Hip than either us. I'm just a poseur, who doesn't even speak French, much less smoke Gitanes.

...and here I am learning only moments ago that Terry Riley is playing at 8pm in Boston and doing some sort of Gamelan stuff. If I go 110 MPH all the way I might get there in time.
